Kidney Walk is the nation's largest walk to fight kidney disease. Held in nearly 100 communities, this event raises awareness and funds lifesaving programs that educate and support patients, their families and those at risk of kidney disease. Join us one last time at Turner Field for the 2016 Atlanta Kidney Walk, scheduled for Saturday June 4, 2016. Atlanta raised over $200,000 in 2015, and we encourage all interested walkers to join us for another amazing year! Sign up to participate here.
Thank you to everyone who attended Georgia’s first Bonne Santé fundraiser. Together we raised over $43,000 in the fight against kidney disease! We’d like to give special thanks to our sponsors Fresenius Medical Care and the Augusta University Nephrology Department as well as our committee leaders Dr. Laura Mulloy and Chef Todd Ginsberg. We can’t wait until next year! To learn more about the Bonne Santé food and wine showcase please click here.
The second annual Paint Atlanta Orange gala, an event of The National Kidney Foundation serving Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi, was an evening to remember—thank you to all who attended and showed your support for the NKF. We would like to give a special thanks to our MC for the evening, Traci Braxton, along with our Gala Committee Chairs Richard Bowers, Anthony Tuggle and Tharon Johnson and to our entire Gala Committee. Together, we honored the transplant journeys of Raleigh Callaway, Melissa Carter, Michael Russell and Jerome Russell, while raising funds in the fight against kidney disease. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2017!
